BACKGROUND: Quality preceptorship is an integral aspect of nursing education. Evidence suggests that preceptor education programs can be designed to support RNs in their capacity as preceptors. Little has been reported on the effectiveness of preceptor programs for community-based nurses who provide primary health care for preschool children and their families. METHOD: The project evaluated the effectiveness of a 4-hour face-to-face tailored preceptor education program undertaken by 59 nurses in Victoria, Australia...

BACKGROUND: The core of pre-registration nursing education is the learning that takes place during the clinical placement. However, despite the fact that registered nurse preceptors are key players in supporting students during their placements there is a lack of literature examining the views of preceptors working with nursing students in mental health settings. OBJECTIVES: To explore mental health nurses' views and experiences of working with undergraduate nursing students and determine what factors influence this experience...

Preceptorship has been identified as an effective strategy for facilitating clinical learning among diverse health care professionals. The benefits of preceptored experiences are well documented; however, the preceptorship model is also vulnerable to challenges. There has been limited evaluation of preceptorship with nurse practitioner (NP) students. This article describes an evaluation of the preceptorship experience from the perspective of NP students. In particular, the facilitators and barriers to clinical learning are described...

The purpose of this pilot interventional study was to examine relationships between adjunctive podcast viewing and nursing students' critical thinking (CT) abilities. Participants were last semester/preceptorship nursing students. The intervention group was given unrestricted access to a CT podcast. There was no statistical significance between Health Sciences Reasoning Test pretest and posttest scores, the number of times the podcast was viewed, and specific demographic factors. The results suggest that CT podcast viewing did not improve CT abilities...

BACKGROUND: Substance use disorders are a major public health problem. As primary care providers, nurse practitioners (NPs) must be proficient at screening, identifying, and intervening for at-risk patients. Screening, brief intervention, and referral to treatment (SBIRT) is a well-established, evidence-based model for teaching behavioral health skills to health care providers. It is vital that Master of Science in Nursing (MSN)-NP programs incorporate SBIRT into their curricula. METHOD: SBIRT content was mapped to 10 courses across an MSN-NP program...

The postgraduate pharmacy residency experience requires residents to develop the proper skillset to not only provide optimal therapeutic management to patients, but to effectively deliver their knowledge to trainees and other health care providers. Without specific recommendations for how to achieve these skills, residents may hone their communication, organizational, and teaching skills through a number of different venues currently offered by residency programs nationwide. Residency programs commonly offer a longitudinal experience in order for residents to obtain didactic teaching skills; less often do programs offer a concentrated rotation dedicated to academia...

This study investigated whether implementation of an instructional strategy during hospital orientation preceptorship of newly graduated nurses would impact their confidence and ease of transition. Findings revealed an increase in confidence of newly graduated nurses after implementation of cognitive apprenticeship principles. The findings suggest that it can be beneficial to teaching cognitive apprenticeship principles to preceptors for use during preceptorship.

BACKGROUND: Clinical preceptorship is critical for the acquisition of knowledge, skills, and attitudes in nursing care. Cardinal to the development of these competences is the preceptor's knowledge on preceptorship. In low-income countries, the responsibility of preceptorship rests with staff nurses whose knowledge on preceptorship is largely unknown. METHOD: A survey was conducted among 254 nurses using a 3-point Likert scale questionnaire. Mean scale scores were computed for knowledge score...

Interest in uniportal video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS) is rapidly growing worldwide because it represents the surgical approach to the lung with the least possible trauma. Specific training in this surgical approach is crucial due to its technical implications, to perform it safely while upholding the required therapeutic radicality. Novel strategies, such as interactive learning technologies, simulators, high-volume preceptorships, and targeted proctorships, play important roles in the training for uniportal VATS which, ideally, should be standardized, governed, and credentialed by national and international surgical societies to ensure patient safety and academic responsibility...

BACKGROUND: Tanzania is a low income, East African country with a severe shortage of human resources for health or health workers. This shortage threatens any gains the country is making in improving maternal health outcomes. This paper describes a partnership between Touch Foundation and NYU Rory Meyers College of Nursing - Global, aimed at improving clinical mentorship and capacity among nurses and midwives at two rural hospitals in the Tanzanian Lake Zone Region. Clinical mentoring capacity building and supportive supervision of staff has been shown to be a facilitator of retaining nurses and would be possible to acquire and implement quickly, even in a context of low resources and limited technology...

Little evidence exists to support the effects of a preceptor-mentor program for orienting newly hired certified registered nurse anesthetists (CRNAs). The literature suggests that participation in a preceptorship-mentorship program will increase the satisfaction, confidence, and comfort of both preceptors and newly hired orientees. The purpose of this project was to determine the effects of these outcomes. This program was developed based on best evidence and implemented as a quality improvement project. Three sessions were held to educate preceptors (N = 12) in the following areas: communication skills, providing constructive feedback, and assessing learner's styles and needs...
